All the World’s best pole vaulters sign up for Belgacom Memorial Van Damme

As it is the case in the Women’s High Jump, the Men’s Pole Vault presents a world class field at the Belgacom Memorial Van Damme. The three World Championship medal winners will be on the infield.

With World Champion Raphael Holzdeppe, Olympic Champion and World silver medalist Renaud Lavillenie and bronze medal winner Bjorn Otto the best Pole Vaulters in the world will be represented in Brussels.

For Renaud Lavillenie the Belgacom Memorial Van Damme provides a unique opportunity to take revenge for finishing second in Moscow. Lavillenie also tops the rankings in the Samsung Diamond Race by a wide margin. But his challengers from Germany are ready to make life difficult for Lavillenie. The Men’s Pole Vault promises to become one of the big battles in Brussels.
